A festival dedicated to rock and metal music is set to take place in the North-east later this year.

Full Metal Haggis, organised by Captain Tom?s studio and Fat Hippy records, will be held at Deeside Activity Park, near Aboyne in May.

The outdoor festival has already proved so popular that advance tickets for the event have sold out, with organisers overwhelmed by the response received.

Tom Simmonds, owner of Captain Toms and organiser of Full Metal Haggis said: ?We did a festival last year called NXNE. Having done that, which was a massive success, we had an excellent event to prove it could be done ? so we decided to host another one this year.?

With a host of local bands already signed up, organisers said there are still more than 20 bands to be announced. Acts taking to this stage will include Zombie Militia, Ray Brower, Thrashist Regime, The Ruckus, Frontier Of Existence, Cobalt, Black Atom, Orynthia and many more. Although there are local bands taking part, there will also be touring bands, including some from England and Europe.

Tom said: ?Our long term goal is to have the festival at 5000 capacity.

?I think it?s something the area really needs. Full Metal Haggis will help to realise what can be done and what starts off small can be grown into something bigger.

?The reception we?ve had for it so far has been amazing.

?There?s always been a lot of support for rock and metal music here, so we?re trying to get the community involved.

?We?re holding it at the Deeside Activity Park, where we?ve been before and we know what we?re doing.

?They?ve got a lot of space and all the facilities we need so it ticked all the boxes and it?s got a beautiful view over the Dess Valley.?

The Festival will take place on May 26th and 27th from noon until 11pm. Tickets for the festival from 33.25 for a single day ticket to 55.25 for a two-day weekend ticket. There are also camping passes that can be bought for those staying the weekend, which are valid from Friday to Sunday.
